yeah I never travel with water tanks full. There more I read this forum the more I think im different style than many of you guys. We have like three spots we camp at that are all less than 50 miles from home. We dont take a lot with us and really only own a camper for the A/c while sleeping. We also almost never use our bathroom and go to the bathhouse if its close by.

And I'm probably more different than most of the other RV'ers here.

I use my TT for tailgating weekends for all the home football games, and and many of the road games. The extreme was in 2016 when I pulled the trailer to 6 home games (430 mi round trip), plus road games from Richmond, VA to Syracuse, NY, South Bend, IN, and Orlando, FL.

In 2014 I used the TT for a cross country trip that was 7,900+ miles long. And this year, I hope to complete a trip to the northern Great Plains and Rockies which will be 5,900 miles long.

I rarely ever pull my trailer to a campsite in a state park and just hang out for a weekend, or week for that matter.

Of course, this is why all of us have such widely different trailers and other RV's. We all have different comfort levels that need to be met, and different uses of the RV which requires big differences in length, slides or no slides, and varying number of slides.

And the good thing is, there are a huge number of different types of RV's, and within the different types, lots of different floor plans, sizes, and amenities.

Buy reading the above comments you can tell why the TT salesperson and the TV sales person, have no idea how or where you camp.

They really do not care how or what you do.

Hence it is the responsibility of the buyer to know these things. So, the more information this board can give them the better.

X2.... And it doesn't matter how you use it, the salesperson is positive that what he has is perfect for you.
